Get in the game with these half-time hankerings.


Football & Player Peanut Butter-Chocolate Cookies

Melt chocolate bark as the label directs. Stick a toothpick into the bottoms of peanut butter cookies; dip them into chocolate bark to cover completely or just one end to create a helmet shape. Let the cookies dry, then pipe on laces, eyes and helmet masks with melted white chocolate candy coating.


Cocoa Krispie® Footballs

In large saucepot, melt 3 T. butter; add 4 C. mini marshmallows and stir until marshmallows are melted. Remove from heat and stir in 6 C. Cocoa Krispies® cereal; refrigerate two minutes. Shape into footballs and pipe on white laces with melted white chocolate candy coating.


Football Crackers

Cut slices of salami and cheese into football shapes. Place on oval-shaped pretzel crackers; top some with a second pretzel cracker for variety and make the laces with horseradish sauce.


Sausage Players

Cut extra large olives in half to create helmets and slit them in the back. Top cocktail links with olive helmets; pipe on eyes and facemask with mustard.

Get ready for game time! Visit Roche Bros. for a complete assortment of Tasty Tailgating offerings, fresh and ready for your whole team at home. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the game with all of these choices on the menu.

As the party kicks off, everyone loves chips and dips, especially when there are many flavors on the table. Feature our fresh guacamole, 7 Layer Dip,  Buffalo Chicken Dip, and Spinach & Artichoke Dip, with crackers, chips, and fresh cut veggies, available in the produce department.

Offer a wide array of finger-food favorites, including chicken tenders and stuffed potato skins, with three types of fillings, buffalo chicken, BBQ pork or bacon & cheddar.

Add a Tasty Tailgating Snack Platter from the deli department to your game day fare! With four choices of platters that feature the high-quality deli meat and cheeses from Dietz & Watson and other popular brands of cheeses and snacks, we have something for any preference: All American, Italian, International or Vegetarian.

Make your finger food spicy and fun with our Build Your Own Nacho Kits, with pre-cooked seasoned ground beef, homemade chips and all the fixings!

Football season is prime time for wings, and now is the time to try Our Kitchen’s new antibiotic-free jumbo chicken wings, in four flavors: Buffalo, Carolina BBQ, Maple Bourbon and Sweet Teriyaki.

A long-time staple for tailgating, our Bakery’s Bloomin’ Breads is loaded with mozzarella and pepperoni, and ready for your guests to pull apart.

At half-time, our Certified Angus Prime burgers and sliders are ready to feed your crowd.  Switch things up by serving them in our special flavors, such as the Steak Bomb, Bacon and Cheddar, or Portabella Swiss.

Italian sausage or marinated steak or chicken tips are also crowd pleasers. Grill them up and finish them off with fresh cut onions and peppers, ready to go in produce.

Or turn your tailgating party into a barbecue without turning on the grill. Our BBQ Pulled Pork and St. Louis Ribs are tangy, flavorful, and ready to heat and serve. Add our deli’s cole slaw or homemade potato salad to complete the meal.

Visit the seafood department for a Football Shrimp Cocktail Platter. We arrange our fresh cocktail shrimp with slices of lemon and plenty of tangy, spicy cocktail sauce on a tray that’s ready to serve. Or serve up our spicy Buffalo Shrimp Dip or original Jonah Crab Dip.

Finish the party off with desserts from Our Bakery! Football Whoopie Pies are a sweet and festive addition to your spread. And don’t miss our new S’mores Pie, melting with chocolate and marshmallows. Heat it up in the oven or on the grill!

We hope to see you every weekend during football season to help with all your tailgating party needs. Enjoy the season, and of course, go Pats!
